Another short story, “Timeless” was published in A Mail-Order Bride for Christmas in a

Prairie Rose Publication. Her novel about a woman sheriff in New Mexico in the 1880s, Death at Gran Quivera was published in 2017. Her most recent book (04/18) by Outlaw Press is called Lost in Time.

In her previous life, Jesse taught K-6, community college classes, and Educational Methods at the University of New Mexico. In her free time, she reads, travels, C/W dances, and visits her family ranch in New Mexico.
